Harness your Gifts for Wellness.

3 Steps to Harness your Gifts for Wellness.

 

Often we humans get strongly attached to the outcomes we desire in life and if these do not meet our expectations we tend to get deeply disappointed. Focusing constantly on these feelings of disappointment we begin to sow seeds of Unwellness!

If you have felt that way, consider taking these 3 steps that will shift your view point and harness the power of your gifts to make roads for your Wellness.

 

1. Finding your Gifts

Expand your vision, look at yourself and what surrounds you. You will soon find you have been blessed with countless gifts that you were not even aware of or have taken for granted… and that life itself is a gift!

You have the miraculous gift of a self regulatory body. A heart that constantly beats itself… A digestive process that works to provide nourishment from the food that nature provides … Breath that provides you with life and countless other automated processes that give you the gift of livingness and human experience on Earth.

You will find you are surrounded with an abundance of gifts from Nature! The Sun that gives our days Light, warmth, nutrients, cheer… The Earth that houses us, grounds us, shelters innumerable other creatures and forms of life, grows infinite variety of trees, plants, herbs, vegetables, fruits that provide us with healthy and tasty feasts, nourishment, healing colours, herbs and sounds. The Atmosphere, seas and forests that provide us with healthy frequencies and rich ions. The life giving air we breathe, the water we drink, the darkness of night so we can recuperate…

 

2. Appreciate your Gifts

Once you awaken to the presence of these rich gifts, you will never take them for granted or abandon them. Let us not come to this realisation once we are unwell, for Wellness itself is a gift ! Take time to appreciate the gifts life gives and what they bring to you…  We are sentient Beings and have the unique gift to feel and experience.. Linger in the morning rays of the sun, watch the amazing colours of the sunset, the calm moonlight, the twinkling of stars in the vast sky, the aroma and colour of flowers, the amazing shapes and tastes of varied plants and fruits, feel grateful for them and remain in a state of awe for this bounty!

 

3. Focus on the feelings of Gratitude

Learn to repeatedly focus on your gifts, the feelings of gratitude and the state of awe they bring. Focusing on the feelings of Gratitude brings joy to the heart, triggers the release of  healing chemicals by the body laying strong grounds for your Wellness!

Nature to Our Rescue - Air Filtering Houseplants.

 

More Indoor Time May Mean More Indoor Toxins.

 

As we humans are now spending more time Indoors, it is beneficial to re-visit the indoor plant study conducted by NASA, on the toxins that were found in the indoor air and using some of the plants found in the study to effectively remove those toxins to improve the quality of the air we breathe!

 

Although the toxins present in each individual space  would depend on what was present in the Space, the most common ones found along with Dust and mould were:

  • Trichloroethylene
  • Xylene
  • Formaldehyde
  • Ammonia
  • Benzene

 

The toxic symptoms commonly linked with short term exposure to these toxins found were Dizziness, Headache, Nausea, Vomiting, Drowsiness, Ear Nose Throat irritation, Sore throat, Asthma, Cough, Confusion, Heart problems, Liver and Kidney damage.

 

The Study also then went on to find that certain Plants could come to our rescue by releasing not only Oxygen but also effectively  clearing the indoor air of these toxins, moulds, dust, paint, etc….

To Effectively carry out this task, the plants need to be  of a certain height and number depending upon the dimensions of the area involved.

Six of the plants that were found to be the most effective in purifying the quality of indoor air were,

Aloe Vera, which  releases Oxygen, absorbs Carbon dioxide, Carbon monoxide , Formaldehyde and can replace an air-purifier in the space.

Ficus Elastica which does not need a lot of light is also very effective in removing Formaldehyde, although its leaves can be poisonous, especially if children and pets are in the house.

Ivy was found to effectively clear 60% of the toxins in the air in 6 hours.

Spider Plant which performs Photosynthesis under minimal light also absorbed Formaldehyde, Carbon monoxide, Gasolene and Styrene.

Snake plant, an endurable plant was beneficial especially in the bedroom as it also released Oxygen at night.

Peace Lilies, 3 to 4 plants placed per 80 square meter area were found to remove Formaldehyde and Trichloroethylene in that space.

 

Let us continue to look for and work with the wonders provided by Nature to improve our Health and Livingness !
